New England Aster

Symphyotrichum novae-angliae

Busting myth #4: New England Aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae) is native to eastern North America. Like any other plant, it has its preferences, including a penchant for moist, rich soils. But it can tolerate average, well-drained soil. Just give it plenty of sun.
